The EndUp

If you simply must keep dancing, you’ll probably end up at The EndUp, which has been a late night dance club since 1973. There are multiple bars, a patio area, and house and techno music sets. It often gets very crowded. The EndUp stops serving drinks at 2AM, but patrons are encouraged to rage, rage against the dying of the light until closing at 4AM.

The EndUp, 401 6th St., San Francisco, CA, USA +1 415 646 0999


Mighty is a 6,000-square-foot dance club in the industrial warehouse district between Mission and Portrero Hill, with three bars, performances by international DJs, an outdoor smoking area, and plenty of space on the dance floor. No need to clear out when the bar closes; this venue is also open until 4AM.

King’s Thai Cuisine

For all of your late night noodle needs, try King’s Thai Cuisine on Clement Street in the Inner Richmond, open until 2AM. This place offers cheap, delicious, authentic Thai food of massive proportions; definitely worth trekking to after a night of dancing and drinking.

All Star Donuts

This tiny, 24-hour, neighborhood donut shop in the Inner Richmond never fails to fill an empty, late-night belly. An extremely friendly staff serves delicious, sugary donuts at any hour of day or night. All Star also offers breakfast sandwiches, burgers, and fries. The maple bacon donut is heavenly.
